The text also expands on Mike's own wealth of experience and knowledge with numerous relevant quotes and opinions from over 100 of the world's best-known engineers and producers. Some of the suggestions just ooze common sense but then again it's only in hindsight that one really appreciates the obvious and quite often the not so obvious ideas and techniques that Mike litters this book with. As a student with a classical background in a class full of people with either experience playing electric instruments or experience in music technology, I found myself confused and dragging behind. Senior has tons of practical knowledge and deep insight on how to approach and fix common small recording studio mixes.

On the way, you’ll unravel the mysteries of every type of mix processing, from simple EQ and compression through to advanced spectral dynamics and ‘fairy dust’ effects.If you already know everything, pick up a copy to skim, then gift it to a friend who's starting out. In the end, this may not have been exactly the right book for me, but I don't want to discount its value.

On top of that, Mike Senior has a very enjoyable writing style - his personality and humor definitely shine through. I FOUND AN EXCELLENT "MUST HAVE" for anyone pursuing music recording and mixing as a career and life-long hobby. It's pretty awesome to stumble across a quarterly print 'zine that's "dedicated to increasing visibility for women working in live and recorded sound. Pick up tricks and tips from leading-edge engineers working on today's multi-platinum hits, including Michael Brauer, Serban Ghenea, the Lord-Alge brothers, Tony Maserati, Manny Marroquin, Dave 'Hard Drive' Pensado, Jack Joseph Puig, Mark 'Spike' Stent, Phil Tan, Andy Wallace, and many, many more. The EQ, and Compression chapters alone make this book worth the money; but Senior also goes on to give valuable tips on software (some of it free) and hardware without sounding like he's pushing any particular brand.

Now extensively expanded and updated, including new sections on mix-buss processing, mastering, and the latest advances in plug-in technology.

Author Mike Senior is well equipped with his experience as engineer, producer and journalist for Sound-on-Sound magazine to guide any reader, with an intermediate to advanced understanding of the studio recording and mixing process, through four main sections. The book is interspersed with humor, which helps to mellow out the otherwise heady engineering lingo. The emphasis throughout is always on applying these powerful tools to address specific identified mix issues, and using them skilfully. The contents of this article are subject to worldwide copyright protection and reproduction in whole or part, whether mechanical or electronic, is expressly forbidden without the prior written consent of the Publishers.

Mike Senior gives the novice the fundamental information necessary to understand and execute all basic mixing tasks as well as many advanced mixing ones. The book is structured in a progressive fashion, following a logical mixing workflow, and developing and building on ideas and techniques throughout. Jim Williams has spent much of his 56 years working with some of the biggest names in the music business, including Frank Zappa, John McLaughlin and Stevie Wonder. Warning: For those readers who get upset when we deviate a bit from matters strictly audio, you should skip ahead to the next microphone review that fits your budget. Many books have been published about mixing, but in all honesty I'd say Mixing Secrets is easily the most practical, complete and ultimately satisfying that I've read so far.
